Overtime and Cam Newton are teaming up to give another opportunity to promising football players to showcase their talents.

On Tuesday, it was announced that Overtime would be teaming up with the superstar quarterback for the launch of a new 7-on-7 football league named OT7.

Per the release, 24 teams from across the country will participate in the new league which is set to officially kick off on June 6 in Las Vegas.

“As a company, we continue to create, invest in and grow disruptive sports IP that rethinks the athlete and fan experience for the physical and the digital world,” said Dan Porter, Overtime Co-Founder and CEO. “OT7 will introduce fans to highly competitive 7 on 7 football and bring them closer to the next generation football stars through Overtime’s storytelling.”

Newton currently runs eight 7-on-7 teams and is looking forward to the opportunity to get more teams and players in front of Overtime’s audience of 65 million fans.

“I have spent the better part of the last 15 years dedicated to bettering the lives of young football players through 7 on 7 football. 7 on 7 was an invaluable outlet to me growing up, and many professional football players would not be where they are today without that exposure and training in the spring,” said Newton. “I felt that now was the time to leverage my knowledge of the space and partner with Overtime to give 7 on 7 the exposure and investment it deserves.”

Kicking off the week of June 6, games will be held in Las Vegas across a week-long span including pool play and a single-elimination playoff bracket. In addition to league play, OT7 will tell the stories of the nations top football stars as they compete for the championship title.

This includes a docu-series following each team, game recaps, player features, QB Showdown, a combine, a series with Cam and more. All content will be featured across Overtime’s social accounts dedicated to all things football including YouTubeInstagram and TikTok.
